Encouraging Child to Join Preschool

Many parents experience that their children find difficult to adjust in preschool in the beginning. However, if parents encourage children to join preschool in a proper way, children may not find difficult to adjust. Read on to find tips for encouraging children join preschool.

Kids at a tender age are usually found to be averse to attending preschool for the first time. This is a common problem with kids and experts believe that it can be effectively dealt with if the fear is about the preschool is removed from their minds. Children do not really enjoy drastic and complete change of environment. Here are a few suggestions on how the parents can encourage the child to attend preschool with lesser trouble.

Getting the Child Acquainted

You need to create the atmosphere of the preschool and start practicing the activities that are a part of the curriculum there in the house. This will acquaint the child with the new atmosphere that he is going to be a part of and also have a clear idea of what he is expected to do there. This is how you do it:

Reading Sessions

Give your child a daily experience of reading from story books. Visit with your kid to the nearest library or bring in some books for him. It works better if your kid has a reading table with a chair and a bookshelf of his own. There should be some reading options as well. Like different types of children’s story books, comic stripes, fairy tales, superhero tales and also science fiction tales for kids. Encourage him to exercise his choice. It will enhance the memory and analytical skills of the kid.

Engage in a Book Talk

This should be a discussion session where you must encourage the child to air his views and opinions on the story they have just read. Ask them to talk about things they liked and disliked and the reason behind it. Ask them to relate the stories with their own experiences in a simple fashion. This can be interestingly done through questions like “who walks like that?” or “remember, who acts like that?” this will excite them and make this session an enjoyable one.

Engage in Extended Discussion

The discussion can go beyond books in a separate session. Encourage the kid to tell personal stories like any event or about a person that they would like to talk about and things that interest them. This should be a responsive conversation where the kid should feel free with his expressions. Work on complex sentences and vocabulary structure.

Language Games

Language games are an extension of the reading session. This activity can have poems, songs, stories that have alliteration, repetitive rhymes in a certain fashion and finger-plays. This will help the children to work on the language and when done in group, it will be even more exciting.

Writing Session

Your kid’s desk must have a writing section that has all the required materials. Ask them to write specific letters and words when it is time for them to learn the alphabets. But apart from this encourage them to write and express what they have to say. This will enhance their writing skills, grasp the language better, and enhance their vocabulary and motor skills too.

Drama or Play Session

This should be a fun session where the kids enact stories and events from the books they have read or you can also suggest them to stage a play. Help them with the simple props and makeup. Add music and puppets so that they enjoy a wholesome experience as well as learn the mechanism on how things take place in a fun way. Role play will help them memorize dialogues and interact in a group.

Finally, remember as you introduce the child to these activities, and he discovers in his first visit to the preschool that he is already aware of what is going on there, he will be looking forward to his admission and be all the more excited as he would be having new friends as well! There will be no fear of the unknown.

I had a really tough time in sending my child to preschool. He used to cry a lot and clung to me. It was very emotional. I wished I had prepared him earlier.

For a child, preschool is a big thing as he has to leave his parents and adjust to a new surrounding. Preparing him for preschool really helps in adjusting.
